Dear Matrox,

Some questions: Could you say this is the natural successor to the RT.X2 card? Will it be easy to swap my old trusty RT.X2 card with the Mojito and upgrade to CS5.5? I don't see any break-out box (just cables?). Same driver family as the MXO2?

Thank You. Greetings from Holland.

Hi,

If you are looking for an RT.X2 replacement, the MXO2 Mini does a good job. Offers the same composite, S-video, and Component I/O that RT.X2 had, but adds HDMI connectivity as well.

If you need SDI support, then Mojito is more cost-effective than the MXO2 LE with MAX, which would have comparable specs but is an external solution. Mojito does not require a power supply or adapter card, and does not have a breakout box, therefore is more economical to produce.

In comparing to MXO2, bear in mind that beginning with CS5, Adobe is using the GPU for their own Mercury Playback Engine, so the Matrox GPU effects are no longer available with any Matrox hardware, RT.X2 included. The Matrox CPU effects - Color Correction, Luma and Chroma Key, and Wipes are still available however.

Please make sure your system has Windows 7 64-bit to run CS5 or newer, and it helps to have an Adobe-approved Nvidia display card also.

Mojito offers the same MAX performance as MXO2 with MAX devices, for fast output to H.264 formats.

Thank you

Hello and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. Thank you Jeff for your help. The Matrox MXO2 family as well as the Mojito MAX card are the natural successor to the RT.X2 card as you put it. The difference is the Mojito is a strait PCIe card and the MXO2 family can be made portable with our ExpressCard/34 and Thinderbolt adapters. Both run off the same drivers also.

regards,

Thank you for your quick replies! I guess the MXO2 family is a little bit more flexible futurewise. Would be nice to see Thunderbolt/Light Peak coming to PC soon.

Hello and thank you for your continued interest in Matrox products. We wanted to offer another option for our users. It would be great if Intel could bring their technology over to the PC side. Until then we have to make the best out of what we have.
